In Photos: Megaupload’s Founder’s Car Collection Taken Away

By | January 20, 2012

Cars seized from Megaupload CEO

The last 24 hours have been rough for Kim Schmitz, founder of the now defunct Megaupload video hosting and file sharing site. In case you haven’t heard, the feds shut down Megaupload and arrested Schmitz on several counts of copyright infringement, racketeering, and money laundering.  Things got even worse when authorities hauled off with his private car collection worth millions.

Below are pictures of two car haulers headed off with Kim’s entire fleet of vehicles, including several with some really self-righteous vanity plates. “GOD”, Mr Schmitz…? Really? Megaupload wasn’t that amazing of a site…

Anyways, some noteworthy vehicles involved in the seize include a Rolls Royce Phantom Drop Head Coupe (the “GOD” vehicle), a Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG, ML63, S65, CL65, CL63, a Maserati GranCabrio, and a Lamborghini LM002- yes, he actually drove one of those.

Check out the results of the seize in the photos below:

What a goober.  I remember him from the gumball 3000 videos.  Guy sure had a thing for AMG’s!

No kidding. Nothing makes you look like a douche more than a license plate that says CEO. Well, besides actually driving a Lambo LM002.

Yeah Shah, I was going to say the same thing – you’re hard pressed to see anything but a Merc in his collection. My favorite part about Kim is that he legally changed his last name to Dotcom. :)

Lambo LM002 = Lambo Fail, SUV Fail, and Italy Fail.

He had all those cars and added a MINI Clubman to the mix? What was wrong with his brain?

That’s funny, I was thinking the same thing about the Mini.  So I read today that our friend Mr. Kim Dotcom was denied bail because he is “flight risk at the extreme end of the scale”  YA THINK!  I’ve seen that guy drive those AMG’s, he will run like Usain Bolt if they let him out!
